Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this FOA is to invite applications to promote health equity and improve the health of individuals and populations at risk for suboptimal health outcomes through the use of primary care and community interventions that address chronic conditions, including prevention and management of multiple chronic conditions.
